Team Fortress 2 Update 15-10-09

Another Day, Another update.  This One I would like to call the "TF2 Dodgy Server update."

Team Fortress 2:

  • Added "+quickswitch" command, which brings up a small panel allowing you to rapidly change the loadout of your current class & active weapon slot.

  • Added 1/2 Bonus Point for healing a teammate with a dropped sandvich

  • Updated server ConVar "tf_playergib" to have 3 settings for player gibs: 0: never, 1: normal, 2: always (default is 1)
  • Updated "player_hurt" game event to include "damageamount" and "crit" values
  • Fixed a rare crash in particle system

  • Fixed not correctly remembering the last weapon if you're using "remember active weapon" and the last weapon was the weapon in slot 0
  • Fixed Medic not being able to release his UberCharge if his team won the previous round and the Medigun was his last active weapon (while using "remember last active weapon")
  • Fixed not remembering the last active weapon correctly if the player didn't die before the next round restart
  • Prevented servers from using steam:// commands in their MOTD text
